, if there's any special flavor here, virginia depends on defense to a greater degree in than any other state except for alaska. we are second in per-capita defense expenditures. there's a special flavor on federal spending, because governmental employment is so important, not just in northern virginia, which borders on d.c., but also in hampton roads, the hampton roads area off virginia beach and the surrounding localities. host: what are the demographics of the state of virginia? guest: as with most larger population states, there are many states in one. you have northern virginia, which is about a third of the state's population, now produces 30% of the vote, if not more. that has a low-debate. that particular population is national and international in scope. it is the highest income region. it has the people with the highest educational levels in the state on average. it tends to be the most democratic region. if you go down to and tidewater, roads, that is a heavy defense industry area. it is both white-collar and blue-collar, also has a large african-american population. and it also ha
with the increase taxes that we would see, do you reversed. as well as the deep defense cuts, which is something that would really impact the area dramatically. george mason and stephen fuller, one of the preeminent economists in our area said the defense cuts could cause a recession in virginia and almost double the unemployment numbers. bridget has been several -- rigid has been scary -- very successful in having a low unemployment rate. jobs is the number one priority. that is why we are very courageous that the numbers of supporters in for mitt romney this year. >> does your canada have to win the county to win virginia? guest: i don't know we have to, i expect we will. it was only a narrow margin that president obama won loudoun, the last time and it really was an aberration. virginia republicans have been winning loudoun county in 2009 when governor bob mcdonnell won this area, and then in 2010, of course our congressman frank wolfe, he is extremely popularhe is of course on the ticket this year. he always wins resoundingly. in 2011, we swept all of the state and local seats here in this y
of the federal government is national defense. and i see some veterans with their hats on. all the veterans, raise your hand. \[applause] thank you. thank you for your service to our country and thank your families as well. and we need to have america keep our promises to our veterans and their families for the benefits they've errand. more over, we have new threats from washington t. sequestration deal which is threatening 2,000 jobs in virginia and our readiness. what has the senate done? absolutely nothing. no budgets for the last three and a half years. a lot of members of congress shouldn't get paid if they don't make appropriations. what does president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virginia whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. \[applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a thriving economy where businesses are prospering an
of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit forces, look he had the situational awareness that the embassy was being attacked -- the consulate was being attacked in benghazi and should have had aircraft over there as soon as possible. john mccain is correct, they didn't have an alert status. we still could have gotten airplanes were armed or not over the consulate annex within probably a couple hours. we should have done that. we didn't even try. we didn't do anything. that is the very disturbing thing. we should have had alert aircraft. first we should have had a global hawk over benghazi and tripoli on 9/11 the anniversary. they announced the day before that we should take radical islamists should take advantage and defeat the americans because they killed binlibbi in afghanistan. we should have had intelligence surveillance and assets right over libya. >> jamie: you are saying we should have begun the operation to protect everyone even before 9/11. we had enough
:00 p.m., the president, vice-president and defense secretary, leon panetta, meet in the oval office. >> that's an hour after the attacks began. at that time they would have had a drone and a video feed from a drone being fed back to washington. >> fox news national security correspondent, jennifer griffith. >> the problem is don't forget that video from a drone is taken from an incredible distance. ground.t have clarity as to who you see figures moving. it's hard to tell friendly from faux. >> 6:00 7'm. another e-mail states that a terror group with ties to al qaeda claimed responsibility on facebook and twitter. administration officials later say a posting on social media and is not in and of itself evidence. 11:5 p.m. another chilling e-mail. subject line, benghazi shelter location also under attack. the next morning, september 12, president obama addresses the nation from the rose garden and what he says or doesn't say will become a hotly debated issue over the next days and weeks. >> since our founding, the united states has been a nation that respects all faiths. we reject all
romney's allies went on television in california, they wouldn't be inclined to play defense there. they feel a little bit of vulnerability in those states. and again, if you take the non-battlegrounds, expand the map a little bit to include pennsylvania, minnesota, and maybe michigan, it's a much different calculation. >> karl rove is going to be putting up ads in pennsylvania now, the president is putting up ads in pennsylvania now. >> yep. >> suddenly the keystone state is the final week out up for grabs. why? not up for grabs yet, the polls show it close. but both sides realize that it's not safe anymore. >> what's the big deal to last week, we have enough money to go there. it's not the money on television, that's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others
with the american people in terms of defense. i think you ought to have a 300 ship navy because we are going to be bringing the troops home. >> first of all the president is right when he says you don't count ships you count the effectiveness of the navy and of the entire military force. what romney is doing is he is appealing to the ship building facilities in virginia. it is campaign rhetoric, not a realistic defense. >> eleanor, once again eleanor is right. >> thank you, tim. >> it is military industrial king pinnism. george allen is doing it in virginia and now romney is doing it. >> we need more ships to make more jobs. >> you sound like obama when you are saying we need more ships to make more jobs. >> we do need ships to defend american interests abroad. >> do we have enough as obama says we have? >> i think we ought to modernize the navy and stay at 300 ships but bring the troops out of places like the middle east, central asia, bring them home. >> the current batch of ships we have are so big and so powerful. >> we used to have 15 carriers, we have now got 11. >> so multi-usable we
's the economy or the benghazi. where we had this strange story over the weekend that the secretary of defense apparently refuse to obey the president's order, if the president is telling the truth and he instructed his assistants to get aid to benghazi, we're now being told that the secretary of defense canceled that. i think these type of things drag down the president. you notice that he's cancelling his trips over the hurricane. he didn't cancel his trips over benghazi and you have to wonder, between benghazi, the price of gasoline and unemployment, just how much the burden the president is going to carry into this last week. >> he does have a burden. as you point, with a lot of those stories coming out. at the same time, he's built up a lead in some of these battleground states. according to a wealth polls that we have seen across the country. it raised the prospect of governor romney winning the popular vote. losing the electoral college. republicans won't exceaccept th is he right? >> i don't know what he means by we won't accept it. we're a nation of law, we'll obey the law. i think it
at the defense of our country. but it is not just the military. there's some things -- look at our transportation system that government does better, where the role of government is necessary to bring all of us together because what is a government? the government is just us working together to solve problems and to create a better america. so this anti-government rhetoric from paul ryan, from the tea party, hating government and from mitt romney, that's what he's all about. hurricane sandy proves that is dangerous. not just wrong. dangerous. dangerous for america. think of hurricane sandy. speaking of, we'll talk to ray stojic from the weather channel next on the "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." live on your radio and current tv. >>only on current tv. dose of politics from a fresh perspective. >>i'm a slutty bob hope. the troops love me. >>only on current tv. the one time it's okay for you to miss my show is if that's the only time you can get to a polling place. make sure that voting is your high
who choose to drive. it is getting longer in new jersey and new york. the defense department setting up emergency mobile gas station. there is a limit 10 gallons a person. mayor bloomberg said it would be a big relief. >> i am optmistic in a couple of days, the shortage will disappear and relatively quickly. it takes time to get the fuel from where it start to where we need it >> that is it what words fopt is hear. quick, quickly david lee miller. so many people there first feeling forgotten and now up close we see what they are dealing with. >>ers are tough and those new yorkers who live in staten island are among the toughest. there is a sense was solidarity and people sticking together in great adversity and there is a special donation center that is now in operation and at this particular location, staten ilaners are helping one another. those who have are giving to the have nots and bringing food and water and clothing. >> and also on staten island. fema and the red cross and other agencies, some of which were critized by authorities for not coming sooner. staten island hardest
. because if, indeed, you cut income tax rates by 20%, and you boost defense spending, you've got to -- essentially, you've got to cut discretionary sending, if you're not going to add to the deficit, by a draconian level. you've got to cut it by like 40%, including fema. so, it's impossible to square what we -- again, what we know of his budget plan, since he won't lay them out in detail, and this new statement that, oh, well, of course i'm going to fully fund fema. well, gee, what's he going to say today. of course he loves fema now. but he didn't love it when they were coming up with a budget plan. >> and to eugene's point, if mitt romney thinks he might get some solace from ryan, there's the paul ryan budget, which also slashes any amount, what is it, $23 million from the budget from fema? i mean, again, their actual plans would eviscerate provisions for the kind of plastic surge emergency that this nation is facing today. >> and very shortly, we're going to be discussing whether or not to raise the debt ceiling again. and debt ceilings get pushed out by these kinds of disaste
of defense. we talk with all the governors in the affected states as well as an awful lot of the mayors. i can tell you confidently that the federal government, state government, local government, they are doing everything in their power to coordinate relief as rapidly as we can do so many people who have been devastated by this storm. [applause] as tragic as it is, my mom, god rest her soul, she said, joe, out of something bad, something good will look --, if you look hard enough. my state of delaware was hit. it is a low-lying state. the hurricane went on shore about 30 miles from rehoboth to, in new jersey. my state, where my in-laws used to live, where my brothers and sisters live, they were hit pretty badly. i have a sister in law and family who live in ocean city, new jersey. you saw how badly they were hit. it is kind of amazing -- it is kind of amazing. a call yesterday with all the governors and mayors, it warmed my heart. you had the governor of delaware, the governor of connecticut, the governor of pennsylvania, democrats and republicans, and they were hurt. the governor of mary
the final few days of the campaign that's right we mentioned wisconsin three times. playing defense there. ohio, six times in the final six days. that's a state the democrats look like they are up in the polls. why is the president spending so much time there it's a american fire wall for him if he can lock down ohio, wisconsin, as well as iowa. republic case on that is, look, he is playing defense in states he should have locked up oa while ago, the democratic response to all of that is why is mitt romney in virginia and florida states that the republicans thought they already had. >> shepard: ed life in las vegas. thanks very much. the new jersey officials say they will make special accommodation to make sure folks in the state can still cast their ballots. it's unclear how many of new jersey's 3,000 polling stations even have electricity or for that matter are still standing will state will extend the mail in county ballots county clerks office in all weekend. deploy military truck once tuesday and some of those truck also be used as mobile polling places. folks along the jersey shore
the federal government has a law in place called the defensive marriage act which basically means that same sex marriage cls ducted in the six states and the district of columbia that have marriage, for example, let's say that a couple gets married in massachusetts and god forbid one of those partner dies. the federal government has a law in place that does not recognize that legal marriage. so for the purposes of things like social security survivor benefits or internment in federal cemeteries or a whole number of laws having to do with tament tax treatment and things like that. that couple in the eyes of the federal government is not recognized as having been legally married. as you can appreciate in the case of death or some kind of family turmoil, that often has led to the emotional and financial devastation to that family. so for federal law purposes at least, the word marriage and the institution of marriage is incredibly important. but really it goes much deeper than that. it's really wanting to be treated as equal citizens under the law. host: our next call comes from illinois. sue,
to sequester those automatic defense cuts. listen to this. >> the strong american military, so strong no one would think of testing it. so strong that people would rather meet us on the bargaining table than on the battlefield that is essential to us and to the world. unlike the president, i will will restore that funding to our military. >> mitt romney has also been in virginia to help george allen get elected to the u.s. senate. allen is a former senator and governor of virginia. and he is trailing right now in the real clear politics average of polls to another former governor of virginia. democrat tim cane by about 0.8 points. the two men have raised about $30 million combined. and more than 40 million will dollars has been spent by outside groups on that race alone. allen getting help from mitt romney. tim cane getting help from the democratic ticket as well. >> folks, understand one thing, barack and i believe as i believe you do. that we only have one sacred obligation as americans. to equip those we send to war and care for them and their families when they comb home. >> so you saw m
guard and the department of defense all positioned, if the public is not following instructions, that makes it more dangerous for people and it means that we could have fatalities that could have been avoided. >> as the winds start building this afternoon, it gets more and more dangerous to go outside and so you sort of caught between a rock and hard place. you should have left but it's getting to be too late to leave. if you really experience an emergency, 911. we will send our first responders in, although we'd love very much not to have to put their lives at risk and you can control that by getting out now. >> i'm very, very concerned and alarmed by those that are not following the mandatory evacuation instructions. they are putting themselves in harm's way and they are certainly putting first responders in harm's way. i think what you just witnessed in suffolk county with people refusing to leave fire island and having to go back and rescue them at this point, fortunately only equipment was lost, but that easily could have been a first responder injured or harmed and that wo
. this season, a good offense is the best defense and lysol has your family covered because that's our mission for health. you've heard stephanie's views. >>no bs, authentic, the real thing. >>now, let's hear yours at the only online forum with a direct line to stephanie miller. >>the only thing that can save america now: current television. >>join the debate now. ♪ >> announcer: stephanie miller. ♪ ♪ [ inaudible ] ♪ >> stephanie: i'm not entirely certain that was microwaveable. >> what did you do? >> did your bowl melt? >> stephanie: it is the "stephanie miller show." >> you have like toxic plastic fumes in your food now? >> antibiotics will kill that too. >> stephanie: uh-huh. karl frisch in the side car, we continue the right-wing world. it's an episode of wishful horrible things. tucker carlson. >> in general natural disasters have a capacity to hurt for example, katrina, than to help, or blame any candidates themselves. there are a number of people who have been blaming this on the global warming. this probably hurts obama a little bit in that it adds to the g

at the same time. although we have coast guard and the department of defense position, if the public is not following instructions, that makes it more dangerous for people, and it makes the dutch of four fatalities that could of been avoided. transportation will be tied up for a long time. perhaps the most of the impact, aside from flooding, will be putting the power back on. we anticipate a lot of trees down, a lot of water. despite the fact that the power companies are working very closely with their various state officials and local officials to make sure they are bringing in as many assets as possible and getting those ready in preparation for the storm, the fact is, many of these emergency crews will not be able to get in position to begin restoring power until the wind had died down. because of the nature of most o, aside from flooding, will be putting the power back on. we anticipate a lot of trees down, a lot of water. the storm, that may take several days. the public should anticipate that there will be a lot of power outages, and it may take time for that power to get back
hoped they had locked down. he's playing defense there because mitt romney is making a strong charge there with paul ryan from wisconsin on the ticket. the president is trying to do in his stump speech is say wait, don't let mitt romney steal the mantle of change that he had in 2008. he's trying to seize it back and say that mitt romney has got failed policies of the past. take a listen. >> in other words, wisconsin they're betting on cynicism. they figure they can outlast you. they figure you know what? these guys maybe get enthusiastic, but over time, that enthusiasm fades away and we're still here. but wisconsin, see, my bet is on you. [ cheers and applause ] my bet is on the goodness and decency of the american people. >> now, obama campaign officials told us they've reached an incredible milestone. they said they've had 125 million contacts with voters. these are over the phone, in person, door to door. they say that's more than double what the republicans have boasted. so they think what that translates to next tuesday would be really getting on the ground in states like iowa h
